BOSTON (AP) — Authorities say a second man has been arrested in the fatal stabbing of a Boston teenager whose body was found in a salt marsh last year.
Nineteen-year-old Jorge Melgar Fuentes was charged with murder June 30 after being arrested in Texas for a separate crime. He is scheduled to be returned to Massachusetts on Friday.
He is accused of killing 16-year-old Carlos Villatoro-Nunez, whose body was found in the Belle Isle Marsh Reservation on Dec. 9.
Prosecutors say Villatoro-Nunez was killed by Fuentes and 21-year-old Moris Javier Landaverde, of East Boston, as part of gang-related activity.
Landaverde was arraigned May 1 for first-degree murder and is being held without bail. Fuentes is scheduled to be arraigned in Boston on Monday.
It was not immediately clear if Fuentes has a lawyer.
